It’s that time of year again! San Diego Comic Con 2013 time! I will be at the show all 5 days this year and I am excited to return to participate on the Full-Time Creative Work on a Part-Time Schedule panel Sunday afternoon. This will be my fourth time on the panel, and we have been doing multiple panels at other conventions all year.
Come check it out if you are in San Diego for the convention, and if not we spun this out into a monthly meetup as well (link is below). We also will be recording the whole thing and posting it on our Vimeo channel and Facebook group. Hope to see you there!
Join the monthly Meetup held at the South Coast Plaza Microsoft store every 4th Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm. http://www.meetup.com/FullTimePartTimeCreative/

Full Time Creative Work on Part Time Schedule
Sunday, July 21
Room: 24ABC 4:00p.m. – 5:00p.m.
Having a goal, a good idea, discipline and skills is only the start of what you need for your project to succeed. Knowing the basics of group dynamics, forming then working with a group without mortally wounding each other is THE difference between your projects success or failure. This panel is the one stop place to learn the 101’s of those topics. No matter which industry (comics, illustration, movies, design, animation or costuming / cosplay), “breaking in” has never been more apt a term than in today’s media. It is a full-time job and you only have part-time hours to accomplish it. To be completely honest most of achieving your goals rests with someone(‘s) helping you and each other with the skills, training or talents any one individual doesn’t have. Topics that will be covered will pertain to ANY group with a goal from hobbist to professional purposes as well as any interest of geek or creative culture. Though topics cover a myriad of organizational subjects, usually the focus stems from: tips and pitfalls, different kinds of leadership that matches your group, importance of starting everyone on the same page and how to keep everyone there, a variety of angles on deadlines and work environments. The panelists have been specifically chosen to represent a broad cross section of levels of authority, departments, media, work pipelines and sizes of organizations so as to talk touch on a variety of topics and more importantly to answer questions specific to your projects – whatever media or goal you are working in. To accomplish this diversity the panelists also come from a variety of media including: illustration, writing, design, animation, podcasting, and live action filming. Hear Topher Davila (Art Director, GeekdomWear.com and Co-Creator/Co-Producer, “We’re Always Like This” ), Sean Glumace (Digital Media Instructor at Golden West College, Comic Book Letterer), Kevin Flessing (Co-Writer “We’re Always Like This”), Mario Martinez (Co-Creator, TomatoTV), Aleister Gilgrim (Creative Director, ICS Mobile), Brendan Creecy (Radio BrendoMan podcast), Ron Coleman (Molecular Geneticist and Writer), Jonelle Davila (Co-Producer, “We’re Always Like This”) and Chris Dickens (Writer and Co-Creator of “Vigilante Project”) provide content that is a mix of speaking, questions and some short interactive applications where the audience can directly apply the topics covered
